Shows Magnatec 5W/20 and previous Analysis was Mobil 1 5W/20 EP to compare.
Car was running very smoothly and quietly on my wife's Elantra.
Went to Magnatec 5W/30 synthetic at this last change as very hot in Texas
Special thanks to Quattro Pete for formatting this for me!

Silicon seems a tad high, check air filter.

This is yet another proof that a 5w20 is enough viscosity for protection, and the low ZDDP levels are plenty as well. Magnatec is rumored to use polymer esters for extra friction and wear control.

20 doesn't seem high to me. Especially since he lives on the Gulf. OP - thanks for posting.
